The year was 1991, and smack in the heart of the Christmas season, Steve Burton debuted as Jason Quartermaine on December, 19th.
General Hospital news reports the 29th anniversary of Burton’s iconic role on the daytime drama, General Hospital. Today his character Jason is well known as Jason Morgan, but a true GH fan can never forget how it all started, as Jason Quartermaine, son of the legendary daytime TV family, Monica Quartermaine (Leslie Charleson) and Alan Quartermaine (Stuart Damon). Steve played the family’s “golden boy” as he was favored over troubled brother, AJ Quartermaine.
Jason’s character has changed and evolved over the course of these 29 years, and has made quite a mark on the daytime audience.
This man known as a protector, mob enforcer, Sonny Corinthos’ (Maurice Benard) right hand man, Carly’s (Laura Wright) best friend, a father, and lover of Sam McCall (Kelly Monaco)… he is none other than the legendary badass, Jason Morgan.
